Parse Pay provides you with the flexibility to create custom dining options in the Parse BackOffice. Dining Options play an important role in tracking your orders, and you can choose from having a default dining option or require that the user select one for each order they ring out.


Introduction to Dining Options

Dining Options are created in the Parse BackOffice. Once created, a new Dining Options button will appear above the cart in the Parse Register, allow users to specify a Dining Option when placing an order. It's important to note that in order for Dining Options to function properly (and for the button to appear in the Register), you must create at least two Dining Options. If only one Dining Option is created, it is set to the default and there is no need to display the Dining Options select button in the Parse Register. 

Example Dining Options

Parse Pay provides you with the flexibility to create and name your Dining Options; however, the most common options include Dine In, Take Out, and To Go.
